Lowri - I have been trying to hunt bunnies all weekend, but TM has been keeping too close an eye on me. Every time I head over toward the sweet potatoes, she calls me back. I am not sure how TM thinks I will be able to hone my skills, if she never lets me hunt! After all, I might have puppies that I need to feed. You never know if TM will suddenly stop feeding me. It hasn't happened yet, but it might!
I did get to go herding several times this weekend. TM said that since I came out of heat and settled back down, I have been acting much more mature - both on stock and in general. She was happy with most of my work on ducks and quite pleased with my work on sheep. I am learning to step up my game. I am going to be in Intermediate and Advanced next year.
I got to snooze on TM's lap this afternoon - literally on her lap. She was napping and was cold. It was either me or the blanket. I made sure the blanket was juuuuuust out of reach. I like napping on TM's lap. She strokes me between my eyes, even when she is partially asleep. It is sooooo nice.
